This is a historical first for Active 20-30. Presidents of two local clubs are husband and wife.
On September 14th, the Active 20-30 Club of Dry Diggins #1034 was chartered as a new club in Placerville, California. The club is the second club in Placerville with the total membership made up of all female members.
The Active 20-30 Club of Placerville #43 assisted in the chartering effort. Doug Perryman, current President of the Placerville club, inducted his wife Joell Perryman as the first President of the Dry Diggins club. The new officers, except for the President were read in by the Regional Director of Region #1 Tom Carlisle, a member of the Auburn club.
The name, Dry Diggins, was chosen for its historical significance. Dry Diggins was the first name used for the city of Placerville. After that name, it was changed to “Hangtown” and then to its present name of Placerville.
The club has chosen as its first project to work with the Winnie Wakely School, a school for orthopedic, mentally, and severely handicapped children.
